World of Warcraft Classic

Patch Notes · Jul 15, 2019


As many of you know, World of Warcraft is where Shivtr began. It started out as the home for our own wow guild before we modified it to be a service usable by other wow guilds. So it should be no surprise we are extremely excited for Classic's launch next month =)

As players we are excited to dive back into Classic, and we are also aiming to strongly support it on Shivtr.

Classic Races & Classes
World of Warcraft Classic has been added to our games database. If you choose "World of Warcraft Classic" as your game, it will show only the race & class options available in classic, which works for characters, guildapps, event signups, etc.

Classic Item Tooltips
Item Tooltips for Classic are now available on Shivtr, showing items only available in Classic, with the stats and info they had.



To show classic tooltips on your guild site use bbcode:
[item]Wingblade[/item]

DKP Systems
While the popularity of DKP systems has mostly died off in retail wow and newer games, this may make a comeback with Classic raiding. Currently Shivtr supports regular DKP and zerosum DKP, and uploading DKP through WoW Addons. We plan to see if other systems become popular in Classic as well and will aim to support them.

More to Come
We will be adding Server Status support for Classic servers once they are announced, and hope to see what other info and features Blizzard make available (Classic Armory?) that we can support on the site.


That's all for this update! Hope you are having a great summer, and perhaps see some of you in Classic next month! =)

Will you considering making your own DKP addon ? One so you can freely customize various parts on the shivtr webpage :)

Not our own no, what we will aim to do is, the popular WoW DKP Addons all included XML export options; we will try to make sure that the XML these export will all work with Shivtr, so you can use them and easily populate the DKP on your site =)

Now that WoW Classic servers have been announced, and it has been one week post release, will we know an ETA of when the server status module will work based on the server we designate?

Could it also show the pop too? (i.e low,medium,high,full)

Thanks

Hi, we're having a problem with our calendar block. It's one that has gone on for a while but it's manifested itself again very recently. Basically, when the following week is a transition between this month and the next then we can't use the >> and << buttons to cycle weeks.

I mean the small 1-week calendar block at the top of our homepage here:

https://strokemywookie.com

We can cycle months if we look at the full /events page but most guild members don't seem to do that and rely on the 1-week version I mentioned. There have been a lot of people commenting that they are unable to view the events we have scheduled for next month.

Further to my earlier reply...even though the calendar has ticked over so it's entirely days within this month we still can't use the << >> buttons to change weeks.

Our new guild loves using Shivter! Thank you!... I have one complaint though.. I am female, and all of my characters are female. Is it possible to designate my characters as female? Or do I pay extra for the privileged of doing so? Right now we are using the free version, but I'm willing to pay for upgraded site as long as I can make my characters female LOL
